Constitutional Court Tour

South Africa's Constitutional Court, the highest court in the land, is a building rich in symbolism in line with the theme of lekgotla, which refers to the traditional African custom of conducting justice beneath the branches of a tree.
The tour begins with the story behind the now-demolished Awaiting Trial Block, the bricks of which were used to build the court; before moving into the court foyer and finally into the court chamber itself. The Constitutional Court tour is conducted by a court expert, who not only discusses the importance of the court in South Africa's constitutional dispensation but also the significance of the building's architecture and artworks.
